God is the same, yesterday, today and tomorrow

  1. Mark T.

    I have found this one concept the most troubling for protestants and non-Catholics. They are all so willing to accept the Sacrifice of Christ on the Cross as their atonement, but they can’t seem to accept the Sacrifice as existing eternally and therefore must be re-presented as an atoning sacrifice after we have sinned via the Sacrament of Reconciliation. They simply think that if they say “I’m sorry Lord” they are forgiven.

      I think the bigger problem is that they don’t understand the meaning of “liturgy” or “sacrifice” in Judeo Christian Theology. In the Old Testament, you slaughter the lamb, then you eat it. It’s the same in the New. Except there is only one Lamb and He was slaughtered long ago on Calvary. That’s why St. Paul says:

      1 Corinthians 5:7 Clean out the old yeast so that you may be a new batch, as you really are unleavened. For our paschal lamb, Christ, has been sacrificed. 8 Therefore, let us celebrate the festival, not with the old yeast, the yeast of malice and evil, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
